Not What I Expected

Me coming out to my mom was not what I was expecting. I always thought she would be okay with it, since two of her best friends are gay men, one is even a drag queen, and she’s always been so accepting and kind to them. I was 16 years old, almost 17, when I… Read more »

People seem to always tell me that I’m “too mature” for my age. I just give them a smile, but in my head, I’m always like “if only you knew what I’ve been through”. Growing up my father really wasn’t in the picture, and my mom was working and trying to get my little brother… Read more »

Self Acceptance and Self Love

My coming out journey was really about coming to terms internally with what being gay meant for my personal life goals and life vision.
